  1. Hi Bruce, It looks like the UI is corrupted and overdrawn the other options. It may be worth re-downloading the Ai Suite from Asus and reinstalling. Best wishes Steve
  2. Hi Bruce, If you haven't got Asus Ai Suite 3 installed, install it and then you can mess about with voltages via the TPU option without having to go into the BIOS until you have firmed up what works for your CPU. The good thing is that the BIOS settings are used at boot up, not the AI Suite 3 settings, so your PC should always start up this way.You can save the Ai Suite 3 settings in a profile and reload the profile after boot up whilst you experiment with what works best, then make the final changes in the BIOS when you are happy. I have an adaptive Core Voltage setting with an offset of -0.085 and the OC Voltage of 1.134. You may need to tweak yours higher or even lower may be possible but it provides a baseline for you to work around. It took a while to find these settings - its a bit of trial and error. In Digi+ VRM, I have a Standard Phase Conrol, with the rest at defaults. You can save the settings in a profile and reload the profile after boot up whilst you experiment with what works best, then make the final changes in the BIOS when you are happy. Obviously be very careful when changing these setting and triple check what you have done before clicking Apply! Good luck Steve
  3. Hi Bruce, I have the same board, CPU and cooler (self build though) and had the same problem as you. I was stunned at the temperatures having previously had a water cooled i5. Various reports state this processor does run very hot and it seems to be why people de-lid it. Having spent a few days looking into the issue and options available, it appears our motherboard comes setup ready for a high overclock so it has high voltage settings. I decided to take the route of not overclocking and reduced the voltage way down keeping boost enabled. The temperatures become much more reasonable, but still higher than I would like. I think it needs a much better cooler than ours to overclock. If you want, I can give you my voltage settings to try. Best wishes Steve
  4. Yair - Windows8Fixer is part of the GoFlight Drivers available on GoFlight's website. Its run automatically when you install the drivers, however a few people need to run it manually afterwards. Best wishes Steve
  5. Hi Paul, The only issue I'm aware of in Windows 10 (and Windows 8) is that the LED's sometimes do not work. This is resolved by running Windows8Fixer.cmd (part of the GoFlight Driver software). If that doesn't resolve the issue, unplug the devices that are not working and then run Windows8Fixer.cmd again. Plug in one device and test (unplug and re-run if it hasn't worked) - rinse and repeat! If the issue is the devices locking up, then you need to make sure all the power management stuff is turned off and you need to spread the more power hungry devices such as the GF166 and GF46 etc across different hubs. Best wishes Steve
  6. The Engravity CDU PMDG Interface has just been updated with full support for the PMDG 747 Queen Of The Skies II. This software provides owners of the FlyEngravity CDU Models 737 or 747 full connectivity to the PMDG 747 QoS II, supporting up-to 3 CDU's simultaneously. Note the newer colour version of the Fly Engravity CDU and the older version 1 ARE NOT SUPPORTED. This additional development compliments the existing support for the PMDG NGX and is a free upgrade for existing customers. Get it here: https://shop.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/engravity-cdu-pmdg-interface.html
  7. The GoFlight Interface Tool has just been updated with full support for the PMDG 747 Queen Of The Skies II. The MCP PRO, MCP, EFIS, and LGT/II devices are automatically configured. All other GoFlight hardware have full access to the aircraft events and variables and can be configured manually. This additional development compliments the existing support for the PMDG NGX and 77X aircraft and is a free upgrade for existing customers. Get it here: https://shop.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/goflight-interface-tool.html

  9. The GoFlight Interface Tool was made compatible for X-Plane 11 a few days ago. Version 1.8.0.0 (XP 11 compatible) has been available for download since Saturday 7th Jan.

    LINDA and GoFlight MCP Pro

    Hi Rich, I wrote the GoFlight Interface Tool (GIT) and it has nothing to do with LINDA and is not based upon it - it is built from the ground up and does not rely on FSUIPC unlike LINDA. GIT supports all aircraft through downloadable configs from the website or by the ability to build your own configs by using GIT Detective. The online user guide and videos explain this. Please use the forum and user-guide at pollypotsofware.org.uk if you need help. Best wishes Steve

    Go-Flight MCP Interface tool

    Hi Neil, There is nothing complicated about the GoFlight Interface Tool for the PMDG NGX as support is built in and the most popular devices are pre-configured (MCP PRO, EFIS, LGT, GF46, and the MESM). All you need to do is install the software, fire up FSX and the NGX, enable the devices you wish to use in GIT and everything will just work. Nothing complicated about that! The software offers alot more than simply NGX support which is why it appears complicated. Best wishes Steve
  12. Support will be added via the GoFlight Interface Tool for all GoFlight hardware as per the NGX and 77X.
  13. Hi Robert, GoFlight do not provide any X-Pane drivers. Some 3rd party support is available for some devices. I released a version of the GoFlight Interface Tool for X-Plane a few months ago which provides X-Plane support for all GoFlight hardware. You can get more details here: https://shop.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/goflight-interface-tool-xplane.html There has been an issue with LED's not working sometimes, since Windows 8. GoFlight provide a program called Windows8Fixer.cmd as part of their drivers which resolves the issue. With Windows 10, it got more complicated as you have to plug in the GoFlight devices so the drivers install, then uplug them, then run the Windows8Fixer.cmd program and then reconnect the hardware. You only have to do this once mind you and then its fixed for good. Another issue you will come across is using USB3 with the hardware. Short answer is don't. USB2 hubs connected to USB2 ports on the computer and all be fine. The only other thing you may come across if you have lots of GoFlight hardware is the need to distribute the more power hungry devices across multiple USB hubs or computer USB ports - the GF166's and the MCP's are the usual culprits. So there are some issues but nothing that cannot be resolved and if you need help, John over at GoFlight will assist you with top notch support. Hope that helps. Best wishes Steve PollyPot Software

    GoFlight Support for PMDG 777

    Hi CaptKornDog, Yes you need the tool for 777 support. The older versions are no longer supported. GoFlight have done some videos regarding The GoFlight Interface Tool (GIT) and the NGX - the principles are the same for the 777. You can see them here: http://goflightinc.com/pmdg-goflight-config-tutorial-video-1/ Full documentation is here: http://www.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/support/user-guide/user-guide-git.html Avsim's very own Rob Ainscough has also done a video on GIT here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M2YrVHU2ew Best wishes Steve PollyPot Software
  15. If you drop the account name details to me via the Contact form on the website, I can make some changes - not sure what happened there though. The forum account is different to your shop account, so you can register for that on the forum itself. Its best we get this sorted in readiness for PMDG 747 v2 support as the old versions will not work it and the newer version is much easier to use e.g. to import aircraft configs. There is also no support for the older versions. Best wishes Steve
